Oregon: Santa Is Coming And So Are New Gun Grabs

Magazine Bans
IP 62 “will enhance the safety of residents, particularly children, of this state by prohibiting the manufacture, sale or purchase of large-capacity ammunition magazines”

Oregon – -(AmmoLand.com)- Just in time for the Christmas Holiday, the folks at [anti-gun] “Lift Every Voice” have presented 3 new ways to send Oregon gun owners to jail.

They've introduced three more ballot measures to restrict and regulate the possession of firearms and firearm feeding devices for the 2020 ballot.

In their usual rush to ignore facts, they have created a new category of firearm; the “semi-automatic assault firearm.”

Semi-automatic assault firearm means (among other things and we did not make this up) “A selective-fire rifle capable of fully automatic, semiautomatic or burst fire at the option of the user..” (Or anything that looks scary.)

They also include many shotguns and handguns in the list of firearms they hope to restrict.

Early news reports not only got the number of new ballot measures wrong but also misidentified one of the ballot measures as “Measure 43” which was a measure dealing with driver's licenses for illegal aliens.

In this report (possibly corrected by the time you read this) Channel 12 said :

“On Monday, they filed Measure 43, the first of two petitions that would require a five-day background check and keep anyone under 21 years old from purchasing assault-style rifles and limit magazines to ten rounds or less.”

Channel 12 did, however, quote us correctly if not completely.

The three new ballot measures (now in addition to the mandatory lock-up measure we are currently addressing in court) are IP 60, IP 61 and IP 62.

  • IP 60. “will implement an enhanced safety training course, add a waiting period and require that the background check be successfully completed before a semiautomatic assault firearm is delivered to the purchaser so that we ensure these weapons are kept out of dangerous hands; and… follow several other states by raising the minimum age to purchase semiautomatic assault firearms to twenty-one …”
  • IP 61 “will follow several other states by raising the minimum age to purchase semiautomatic assault firearms to twenty-one; and…enhance the safety of residents, particularly children, of this state by prohibiting the manufacture, sale, or transfer of large-capacity ammunition magazines…”
  • IP 62 “will enhance the safety of residents, particularly children, of this state by prohibiting the manufacture, sale or purchase of large-capacity ammunition magazines”

As usual, they are doing it all “for the children.”

Obviously these attacks will only be part of the upcoming battles since the Democrats in Salem have promised to get as much of this nonsense as possible passed as legislation in February.

As you can imagine, we’re going to need all the help we can get fighting these attacks as well as the previously filed IP 40 which requires that your firearms be inaccessible.

Please consider donating what you can to protect your rights and the rights of your children and grandchildren.

Unless and until our cowardly SCOTUS takes some of these cases and makes a ruling upholding the constitution, we are all screwed. And we keep letting the leftists dictate the language, thus the “assault weapon” wording.

I will not comply.

And consider this — One day we had the words ‘assault rifle’ and the next day we had the words ‘assault weapon’ and now we have the scary-as-possible moniker ‘semiautomatic assault firearm’. Because when you only have fear to pimp, you will make up the most grandiose term you can come up with to terrorize the sheep into submission. To wit: GUN = 1 syllable. SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT FIREARM = 11 syllables. See what I mean? Fuck these motherfuckers.

The REASON we have these attacks against our Constitution is because the cowardly American people have knelt and licked the hand of the tyrant time after time. When the 1934 NFA went down (Because a terrified congress was afraid the WW1 veterans would buy machine guns and come after their anti-American skins), the American people should have demanded that unconstitutional ‘law’ end. But, that did not happen. In fact, NOTHING happened. Americans allowed the unconstitutional NFA without an opposing word. THAT was the impetus for all ‘gun control’ actions through today. When Americans obey the un-Constitutional ‘gun control laws’, they… Read more »

Exactly. But how many actually knew that the NFA passed in 1934? The average American was still struggling after the Depression and machine guns were the last thing they were concerned about. And criminals didn’t care anyway. Just like today, gun control Laws do not affect those willing to do violence. But now it has been too long to try and get it repealed as the SCOTUS would not hear of it or if they did claim the “long standing” of the law as Constitutional. While we know it isn’t. As long as the District Courts are controlled by Leftist… Read more »
